[QUOTE=DennisTheMenace;501412]Thank you all for your feedback. It sounds like I should get out my checkbook.
My current tow vehicle is marginal at best, a two door Jeep Wrangler (2004, 6-cyl). It will suffice to get the trailer home, but probably isn't a suitable choice for long distance towing. However, it's 10 years old and I've been shopping for a new vehicle. I was looking at a Subaru Outback, but right now I'm inclined to look for a gently used (3-5 year old) 1/2 ton pickup. That would give me plenty of towing capacity (with a longer wheelbase) and extra cargo space for things that won't fit in the trailer.
Dennis I have been driving Astro vans for nearly 20 years. they tow our casita
like we are hauling nothing. You can put kayaks on top and all you extras inside. they run for 200K miles and beyond. a good used one can be found on CRlist for 3 grand. buy the casita
they are great fun Scot
